About the Wivenhoe Independents

Wivenhoe Independents are a loose collective of independently minded Wivenhoe residents. We are not part of a political party – in fact the exact opposite is true.

The aim of Wivenhoe Independents is to give the town of Wivenhoe a voice at Colchester Borough Council that is free from the whip of the mainstream political parties.

Three Wivenhoe Town Cllr’s are behind the Independents at this early stage: Cllr Shaun Boughton, Cllr Andrea Luxford Vaughan and Cllr Mike Newton. The election agent for the May 2016 local elections is Town Cllr Asa Aldis.

We very much believe in openness and transparency. Our policies are broadly themed around getting the best for Wivenhoe out of Colchester Borough Council. One of our key themes is to ask for resident involvement in helping to shape these policies.

Wivenhoe Independents hope to develop within the town, and to truly stand up for residents at the Borough Council by contesting future elections.

We would love for you to become involved in our quest to make Wivenhoe an even better place in which to live.
